Virtual machines are suboptimal for asterisk, because Asterisk a real
time application.

My solution was to use small mini-itx systems with solid state disks
and/or compact flash for my phone system and my radio system. My main
file server is also mini-itx. The 2 asterisk systems draw less than 30W,
and the file server draws less than 50W. This is 0.11 kWh.

A kill-a-watt meter was used to make these measurements. These can be
had for under $30.00 each. I don't know if they make a version for UK
230/240V mains voltage (BS 1363 plug) though.
